Common Mistakes After a Bicycle Accident
We are often asked about the mistakes people make when they have been injured riding a bicycle in the Western New York area. First, they often fail to seek medical treatment for their injuries. Second, they don’t follow up with the treatment once they’ve been diagnosed and treated by the initial provider. Third, individuals often give recorded statements to the insurance companies, something we never advise our clients to do.
Next, many bicycle accident victims often delay getting an attorney. Over time, memories can fade and evidence can get lost. Acting quickly is important in these cases.
Finally, many people often pick the wrong attorney. If you have been involved in a bike accident, you need to pick an attorney who is comfortable in the court room, who has experience trying cases, and who is not afraid to zealously advocate on their client’s behalf for the insurance companies.
